Information and resources


We provide comprehensive materials for a variety of audiences. One of the most common requests for information comes from new parents who have just learned their infant or young child has an intellectual disability. Each information package is carefully tailored to meet the sometimes sensitive needs of the request. Single packages are free of charge.

The Current: This newsletter is an aptly named in-house information periodical that is intended for SACL members who want to keep abreast of Association news, activities, events and meetings. For a current copy, contact the SACL at (306) 955-3344, fax (306) 373-3070 or email: [email protected].
